Pré-programme Année 2013


The Maison Des Scénaristes is an association of scriptwriters regulated by the French association law of 1901 whose goal is to promote and represent the work of scriptwriters. It is open to all scriptwriters or scriptwriter-directors of fiction, documentaries or animation and to all those who wish to support us. OUR GOALS: - to place the script at the heart of the artistic process and financing of films for cinema/television. - to recognize the scriptwriter’s essential role in the creative process and in production - to become a more direct source of proposals among those who play a role in the profession and among private investors. - to foster exchanges with foreign scriptwriters from all horizons. - to support up-and-coming scriptwriters. - to promote organisations which defend and finance the writing of screenplays.

To that end, we propose to welcome and represent scriptwriters and their partners in international festivals such as Cannes, Berlin, Venise and Sundance and to organize regular meetings in Paris and in France throughout the year.

« The script is the plane we fly across the Atlantic Ocean of production. Imagine trying to bolt on a new wing at 12,000 m in high turbulence. Ridiculous! Yet so often that's what you see happening in the making of movies, those "planes" get launched not because the script is ready but because financing or actor availability dictates it. If Hollywood ensured that the filmaker and the script are given the thorough attention and inspired engineering they absolutely demand and deserve, there'd be far fewer plane wrecks. Good luck with your new venture! » Jon Amiel, Scénariste, Réalisateur « At last! Better late than ever! The creation of a “dream house”, because a script must make us dream, above all else, whether its vision is tragic, comic or simply a faithful reflexion of our times. A scriptwriters’ house to feed dreams to producers and directors who will in turn help the public dream. » Yves Amoureux, Scriptwriter, Director «I sincerely wish you all the best of luck with this new “house” and long life.» Solveig Anspach, Scriptwriter, Director The scriptwriter holds the keys to the dream. No great film is dreamt up without him. Whether (s)he remains in the shadows or steps out into the light, (s)he is the commencement of everything. A house of scriptwriters that unites them can be the vigil before the hearth, where voyagers of all horizons meet to sit, to warm themselves, to listen to fabulous stories and, refreshed by enchanting tales or edifying fables, open the doors to their own hearts to... tell more stories. Abdelkrim Bahloul, Director, Scriptwriter, Actor «The better care we take of scriptwriters, the more likely we are to see good films! » Emilie Deleuze, Scriptwriter, Director

On dit toujours qu'il y a trop d'événements à Cannes pour en créer de nouveaux. En 2012 la Maison des Scénaristes à démontré le contraire. Le succès fut au rendez-vous, prouvant la nécessité de ces rencontres entre professionnels. Chacun a besoin de l'autre, il y avait foule lors de ces journées de rendez-vous avec les inventeurs d'histoires, ces professionnels de l'imaginaire, méconnus et indispensables qu'on nomme scénaristes. Sophie Deschamps, Scénariste et Auteure de pièce de théâtre “Should you call it a house? Wouldn’t ‘refuge’ be more appropriate? But I’ll go for house, and may the best scripts be concocted in its kitchen. So in this house of ours, let’s think of our cooking before all else.” Jean-Louis Milesi, Scriptwriter, Director “I really appreciate your initiative as it will allow for better exchanges and a more direct, spontaneous communication between us all … Excellent initiative… Pursue promoting and developing it, with all my support! Jean-François Lepetit, Producer "Without a script a feature film cannot exist. Screenwriters create feature films. It's as simple as that." Terry Jones Scriptwriter, Director, Actor (Monty Python) "Scriptwriters often suffer from solitude, on top of rarely being well-paid. If this initiative helps reverse the tendancy (through meetings, conviviality, an exchange of ideas, discussions of projects, a helping hand, and, above all, better pay), it will be well worth all the trouble. And let us not forget that there are no good films without good scripts. I’m ramming home a well-known fact, I know, but it can never be rammed home enough". Patrice Leconte Scriptwriter, Director, «The script is the rock that produces the diamond. If its badly cut, you can polish it all you want, it will never shine. Long life to the Maison des Scénaristes - for diamonds are forever. » Agnès Soral, Actress, Scriptwriter « The crucial and indispensable foundation of a film is the screenplay, the blueprint of the house to be built. Without the screenwriter, there would be no film. It is now time to radically revise the notion that the “auteur” of the film is solely the director. La Maison Des Scénaristes has set out to do just that. With La Maison Des Scénaristes, the writer is no longer alone; he is collectively recognized and supported. One should remember, as Joseph L. Mankiewicz wrote, “every directed movie is a screenplay.” » Bob Swaim, Scriptwiter, Director, Producer

VIDEOPITCHS.COM – BASE DE PROJETS ET VIDÉOPITCHS (BPV) The site is dedicated to building contacts between authors and producers and the BPV is a part of the MDS’s global strategy for promoting scriptwriters and/or scriptwriter-directors. The video pitches are supplied by scriptwriters proposing screenplays through the site. They may choose to have them consultable by either producers, directors, distributors or all three. They, in turn, will be able to contact scriptwriters directly or leave their own contact information for them. The MDS provides a filtering service via a committee which will determine whether the projects proposed contain all of the necessary elements and are of a professional quality. The video pitches submitted must be accompanied by a 5 to 8 page synopsis and the opening 5 pages of the script to help the MDS determine its level of development. These written elements will not be posted on the site. Producers, directors or distributors wishing to consult them must ask the scriptwriter to supply them. However, the MDS reserves the right to require improvements to the pitch or project before posting it, as well as the right to refuse to represent the project at all. In certain cases, it may advise the authors on ways of better meeting industry standards. The scriptwriters will not know who has watched their video-pitch, but will be informed of any comments offered. However, to help protect the authors against possible plagiaries, the MDS will keep track of who has consulted which project. And to further put authors at ease over divulging their projects, only identified producers, directors and distributors who are members of the MDS will be able to view their pitches. The MDS also hosts occasional contests preceding major festivals or public screenings during which a second selection, generally in view of a grand prize, will be made a jury of acclaimed filmmakers whose names will be announced in advance.
